Looks good, but be patient when living with it
Gas tank leaks, hehe.
Heater went out in the middle of winter in Chicago, not fun when I've got 5 people in the car, and the steam is immediately frozen on the windows, so we'd have to scrap the ice from the inside! I bet you haven't done that before! But with a Volkswagon Dasher, you can give it a try!
The car doesn't like to start when it's hot. Push, put in 2nd gear, and drop the clutch, then you are fine.
When I open the hood, nothing underneath is not rusted. But somehow, it runs, it's a miracle. I traveled all around the east coast in the car, winter and summer, quite a few times, but always managed to move from point A to point B within a day. Pretty good for a car that I paid $500 and sold for $30 when the radiator water leaked into the engine, causing me to weep while driving in the white cloud of smoke.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
